Alderbrook Golf Course

Alderbrook Golf Course, in Tillamook, OR is a rapidly improving golf course lying in the forested foothills of the Oregon Coast Range. A recently renovated front nine shows the promise of what can be on one of the oldest courses on the Oregon Coast. While severe dog legs, tree lined holes and elevated greens and teeboxes create Alderbrook's greatest challenge, the short distances of many of the holes offer scoring opportunities throughout your round. Alderbrook Golf Course recently had an ownership change, and their efforsts are starting to show. The first step was building a new clubhouse and proshop and the results are stunning. Home to Koko's Restaurant, the clubhouse at Alderbrook is in the top ranks of the entire state. A full service lounge offers great food throughout the day and is a great place to finish off your round. If the improvements on the course continue to replicate whats happening on the rest of the grounds, Alderbrook will be well on it's way to becoming a destination golf course.

Alderbrook Golf Course offers a little bit of everything throughout your round. One moment you are hitting a tee shot into an elevated green 80 feet above you, and the next you are headed even higher into the hills to hit a tee shot into a fairway 100 feet below you. Old growth trees will force you to take your medicine if you miss the expansive fairways at Alderbrook. Wetlands are also prevelant throughout the front nine at Alderbrook, coming into play at some point on nearly every hole. As you move to the back, quirky severe doglegs and elevation changes are your primary foe. Sand is prevelant on the front nine, with many new bunkers spread both green side and in targeted zones throughout the fairway. The greens at Alderbrook run slow, although that may be attributed to the renovations currently taking place on the golf course.

Playing Alderbrook Golf Course
The opening hole at Alderbrook Golf Course is a short, tree lined Par 4. While drivable with a fade, the smart play it to hit your 200 yard club to the middle and play a wedge to the green. The green is hidden when you approach the tee box at the 2nd Hole. Avoid the trees to the left and you should be in good shape for your second shot. The 5th Hole may be the most picturesque on the golf course, a 150 yard Par 3 over water to an elevated green. A spine cutting through the middle of the green requires you to keep your tee shot on the flag side of the green. The closing hole on the front is a great Par 5. A blind, uphill tee shotleads into this tight fairway with a quick turn at the end to reach the green.

The 14th Hole features nearly a 90 degree dogleg left around the treelined edge of the course property. While short, the landing area off the box is tricky. Play too sshort of a club and you won't get around the corner. Too much club and you will hit your tee shot through the fairway. The Par 3 15th is unique. A 114 yard hole, the green is nearly 100 feet above you. Take at least two additional clubs on this hole. The next hole offers a chance to crush your driver. The tee box is elevated even higher than the preceding green to a wide open, straight fairway. Swing away.
